      I guess it depends on where in Connecticut you are Dave.

        Yesterday I was in Oregon, today I am back to Texas .
        Weather in Portland , Oregon by the time I left was 52 degree F but wet . Arrived at 3:00 pm today ---> DFW , 32 degree F but dry/cold/sunny ,

        One day, just enough time to fill a backpack with fig scions and some trees , get ready for Europe .

        A fig adventure will begin Wednesday Jan 28, heading London first .......

          Does anyone here suggest me to go first ?
          Look for fig trees in Regent Park ? Well, it is quite large there . Any specific location in Regent Park ?
          A Chelsea tree 5' high is already waiting for me in London, but I still want to visit the famous big one at a hotel, near the Thames river

            If you get to Borough Market, get the grilled cheese sandwich from Kappacasein--it's AMAZING. It will be the vendor with the longest line--just ask where to find the grilled cheese guy. Have fun!

                                  Your grand daughter is very talented! Good luck. Take advantage of your nocturnal alertness and go raid some fig trees!

                                  These threads talk about some interesting places if you're interested.

                                  There's at least 1 more but I can't find it. Have fun!

                                    The four musketeers ---> ready for fig hunting at Regent Park




                                    These 3 little guys live 1 block away from Regent Park . They have been playing tennis at RP every Saturday, so they sure know every corner of this Park .


                                    For short cut, we entered a private garden reserved for local residents



                                    The garden is quite big, with many tulips and winter flowers . Some cherry trees start to bloom . After 1 hour searching we found no fig tree !

                                    In order to go to RP, the young man told his grandma that we have to go through a tunnel




                                    It is called The Nurse's Maid Tunnel




                                    Wow ! the tunnel is so long

                                            Please identify this fig :

                                            A family friend in London gave me 2 cuttings of this fig without a name, just a picture of it

                                              That's an interesting purple color. Is it true to life?

                                              Yes it is true to life. The picture is from a very reputable/honorable source . I got 2 rooted cuttings from my son-in-law's friend as a gift of England . However that person did not tell the name (variety) of the cuttings. I will bring home one cutting and leave the other in London, just in case mine somehow cannot reach destination. Hopefully by the Summer it will bear fruits and we.have better idea .

                                              You will most likely need to grow it out to start the identification process. Along with the out side of the fig, you will need the inside and a leaf pattern. It will be a fun adventure to figure out what it is.
